It seems the code size could be dramatically shrunk by using a function
pointer callback for the actual operation, and then avoiding all the
copies. Since this is only a fallback this shouldn't be a problem
(and modern branch predictors are fairly good in such situations anyways)

If you really want to keep the code it would be better if you used
some macros -- i bet there's a typo in here somewhere in this
forest.
